Online Maths and Physics Tuition

I am a fully qualified teacher and a friendly, compassionate tutor with a passion for science and mathematics. I enjoy helping students increase their confidence in the subject, using a variety of teaching strategies.

I have the following times remaining for regular weekly lessons in the term time.

Mondays: 9pm
Tuesdays: No availability
Wednesdays: 10pm
Thursdays: 10pm
Fridays: 8.30pm
Saturdays 9am

If you feel a time slot above could potentially work for you, please do get in touch.

I have a unique background, having worked in a number of secondary schools around the West Midlands, delivering KS3 lessons up to GCSE in both mathematics and science. I have also worked closely with local primary schools, to deliver booster sessions to years 5 and 6 in mathematics and increase overall engagement in the subject. In addition, I have taught SEN (Special Educational Needs) classes.

Currently I teach in a leading independent school, with a unique age range covering year 4 all the way up to GCSE. I have had the opportunity to teach classes of each year, therefore I am multi skilled in both primary and secondary, despite my original specialism being in secondary education. I thoroughly enjoy the variety that this brings and feel it is highly advantageous to my tuition, as I have a very large skill set that I can tailor to any student age range and ability.

I have tutored for over 7 years (in mathematics and science) and being a current teacher with GCSE classes, I am fully up to date with all curricular changes and all major exam boards.

Polite request: I currently do not work with third party agencies or companies, since I offer a highly bespoke and personalised service, working directly with all clients.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
I offer online tutoring in Mathematics and Science to primary and secondary school students via Skype and Zoom. I offer only online tutoring because the demand for online tutoring outweighs the requests for face to face tutoring.

Tutoring Experience

I have a wealth of school experience and am equipped with a variety of engaging, teaching strategies, to bring mathematics to real life. I focus on depth of understanding and developing students problem solving skills, this not only makes the maths fun but means students can apply their knowledge to any exam question!

Qualifications Degree: Medical Science (Hons)
Obtaining a science degree has allowed me to see the direct application of mathematics to other fields. Seeing the wide applications of the subject first hand, is why I am so passionate about the subject.

Tutoring Approach

Maths is everywhere, I like to prove this to students by giving them questions in a real life context. I also teach students to be resilient and work through questions logically, developing their problem solving skills. This is a new skill being brought into the revised national curriculum. Therefore will set students up for success in their exams.

I also focus on developing exam technique, helping students to gain all the marks they deserve.
